A city council suspended in animation, trapped in a Twilight Zone euphemistic world!


I realize my blog at times can be quite cynical in the caricaturing of the mayor, his team slate councillors and managerial city staff.  But I have discovered over the 3 years I have posted my blog that other related and more politically correct blogs and other handle-me-with-care media outlets has not advanced or had any effect on the mayor and his 4 to 3 autocratic rule of thumb.  His vainglorious CityShaping vision consists of paving 20 million of tax payers dollars on failing bike lanes and surrendering our skyline to his OCP over densified developer investors from his 2014 re-election campaign.  The mayor’s SHORTsightedness “putting the cart ahead of the horse” has left our daily transportation infrastructures in dire gridlock while local small businesses are unable to keep or find local part time help whom in turn can no longer afford to live in our city.

For me the most disturbing aspect during Mussatto’s dictatorship reign is the loss of so many hardworking people who have landscaped, forged our city’s heritage.  Households from our once thriving lower class, people on fixed incomes, single parent families, seniors, artists and young families.  Many having been displaced, evicted from our city’s shores without a thank you or ever offering temporary housing assistance – Arrivederci, good riddance eh Grinch.

But I am beginning to read and hear more voices standing up against our mayor and his team slate councillors stranglehold on our city.  Like discerning voices on pages 3 & 4 “Change We Want” in the recently published The Global Canadian Newspaper.  Also checkout their facebook page featuring other related stories: http://www.facebook.com/theglobalcanadian/

Finally CNVites are standing up, fed up with all the density and failing related infrastructures, drawing a line in the sand… “enough is enough!”  Change in municipal governance is on its way come October 20th – Arrivederci Mussatto Team Slate councillors!

Note the logo/badge on Mussatto’s Napoleonic hat is the  iconic ‘Anarchy symbol’.  Representing the mayor and his 3 Team Slate city councillors autocratic “4 to 3” empowering decision making on ALL OCP DENSITY BONUS High Rises and bylaw amendments and higher density re-zoning on behalf of many campaign donor developers.

Warning! Our Sultan of Density is getting ready to r-r-rum-mble his autocratic legacy onward and upward to its discontinued end in 287 days!


NV City Hall is now entering its 4th and final year of ménage à collusion by our city council’s controlling despot mayor and his 3 whipped city councillors Buchanan, Holly, Keating and their vulturous developer campaign donors and special interest groups like HUB.  And lest we never forget casino gaming tycoon Tom Nellis’ outstanding $13K campaign donor debt hounding our mayor for a little undemocratic rewrite of his already defeated casino proposal for our city.

Unfortunately it is already shaping into being a hotly contested, disconnected and contentious year with no common gravitas in sight.  The mayor and his city council will continue ramrodding over 2014 capacity developer projects down our throats which will indeed include coercing a casino in one our community front yard’s. These residents will be helpless, powerless in a 4 to 3 casino reprieved vote.  The question then becomes at what point does this community take recourse – standing up, taking on city hall, willing to fight for the safety and wellness of their community.

There is seemingly a growing number of city residents at odds with city hall – having “had enough” when it comes to unaffordable rentals and housing, traffic/commuter gridlock.  CNVites reaching a breaking point, fed-up with Mussatto Team Slate’s ongoing corruption, collusion and widening disconnect with its city residents. 

Beware: City Hall’s New Year’s Resolutions could be more divisively brazing than ever thought possible – buckle up.  #Enough

So long 2015…as our Hell Hound Mayor begins counting down to his 2016 campaign developer demands!


…demands that could also see our mayor wrangle his Team Bandits into agreeing to his Push Bike Wet Dream. Something “city owned eBikes” – could easily resolve – “rented out” at NVCH’s north court plaza at a fraction of the cost and upkeep. An Eco-green cycling city hall revenue making first in Canada!…but then again perhaps not as this would be too easy and cost effective and would give tourists a great alternative cycling option to enjoy our city in the summertime…as in clement summery conditions!”

Mayor's NY Resolution like always
